We were on our way to a function on Cape Cod and thought this motel looked quaint. It was clean but the odor of cigarettes and the lack of amenities was terrible. They charge a modern 90.00 per night for a motel that is steeped in 1970. 2 Towels,in the bathroom and two, well used, face cloths. The air conditioner...

I am a big fan of independent hotels. However, I couldn't let this one slide. It had all good reviews, so I figured paying double for the BW up the street wasn't worth it. Check-in area is TINY, but that didn't bother me. Rooms are straight out of the 1960s, but that didn't bother me either. What did bother me...

I really wanted to like Moby Dick more. Some other lodgings in the area have very mixed reviews; these were 5-star. The price was good. Their website is very promising.

While we were there they changed the sheets every 3 nights with a new vibrant pair every time (same with the towels, no boring white hotel towels), The owner, manager and maintenance/groundskeeper...

I've been staying at this motel for more than 30 years and always felt it was a good place to stay for the money. I called a couple of weeks ago to make a reservation for this past week end. (Aug. 3 and 4th) I was told the rate would be $75.00 per night, the highest rate I've ever paid....

We discovered the Moby Dick on the internet. It was all that the review said it was. We found it to be clean, and cozy. Well worth the rate charged. We left our jackets in the room when we left and they were returned to us free of charged. I guess, not surprising after dealing with the staff of the...
